Description: 

VPT hosted a live round-table discussion with Senator Bernie Sanders and finalists in his 2014 State of the Union essay contest for Vermont high school students. As President Obama was preparing his State of the Union speech, Vermont students were challenged to write a short essay outlining their view of the "state of the union." This year, 380 students from 26 high schools submitted compositions. A panel of Vermont high school teachers judged their work and selected the top 20 essays.
